St Thomas, Werneth

Welcome

Our services take place at 10:30 am on a Sunday morning and on a Wednesday morning. There are usually at least 6 nationalities represented in the congregation on a given Sunday.

On the first, third and fifth Sundays of the month we have services of Morning Prayer. On the second and fourth Sundays we have services of Holy Communion. The second Sunday is All Age. The fifth Sunday also includes prayers and laying on of hands for Healing. All services include bible readings, a short talk, and prayers.

We run a Bible / Discussion Group on a Thursday aimed particularly at those who speak Farsi or Dari - from Iran or Afghanistan - who want to find out more about the Christian faith.

Whatever your background, you can be assured of a warm welcome to our services and our Parish life. We hope that you will find what you are looking for on this website!

We are always happy to host visits from local schools - whether for a service; or to learn more about the heritage of the church; or to find out more about the Christian Faith. The church is full of treasures to discover and explore!

We look forward to meeting you in due course. If you need to get in touch with the Vicar, you can do so on the contact page.

MUGS

Do you have any spare mugs in your kitchen cupboards? If so, please feel free to donate them to St. Thomas' Church.

This is a step towards better expressing care for God's world as a church: we will no longer need to use disposable plastic cups.

WATER HEATERS & KETTLES

Please note that it more efficient to use the water heater in the kitchen (and leave it on all the time) than it is to boil a kettle each time you need water. So, please do not use a kettle if you are making coffee; and please leave the water heater ON when you leave the kitchen!
